Romance Writers Weekly #lovechatwrite

It’s Romance Weekly time! Hello to all joining from Jo Richardson’s blog.

RW Banner

Something a little different this week.

We are to write a love letter, less than 400 words, including the words- sweet (cheated a bit and used, bittersweet), brush, and pumpkin!

I actually wrote this on my lunch break today, so it’s not brilliant, but it was great fun to try out something new! πŸ˜€ I think the love letter should definitely come back into fashion!

To my dearest,

I can no longer brush these feelings aside. It has been too long to ignore what we once had, what we could have again.

How can you not see what I offer? Why will you not accept what I give?

You tell me it would be too much to bear, but I will bear it for the both of us. Bittersweet it may be, short it may be, but forgettable it would not.

The pumpkins are glowing orange outside of my window as I write this, like beacons of memories of what we once shared in those fields.

Take what you will from me, I would sacrifice it all to have you once more.

Just once.

Forever yours…

Not brilliant, and a bit old-fashioned, but great fun to write πŸ˜€

Now, go check out what Elizabeth Janette has written for this challenge!

  1. πŸ™‚ Yea, the good old fashioned romance letter…. ❀ Reminds me of the song Dear Darlin,…. on which I incedently did a Haiku poem post today….. πŸ™‚

    • I’ve seen some of the love letters from very old times (such as Napoleon) and wow, those are incredible! I think it’s a shame that expressing our feelings like that has gone out of fashion!

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

  2. It’s a shame we don’t write letters anymore. I used to, all the time. When I moved house last year, my friend and I got into the habit of writing to each other, and it was such a joy to receive the letters. I enjoyed your love letter – especially the line about the pumpkins. Nicely done πŸ™‚

    • It is a shame, I sometimes manage to write letters to my friend, but not as much as I used to.There is definitely more excitement in receiving a handwritten letter than a text or email I think πŸ˜€

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚
